For many families, the living room is the heart of their whole home. It’s the room in which the entire family can come together, hang out, and relax. You might all enjoy gathering around the TV for a fun movie night or pulling out some of your favorite board games for an evening full of giggles. No matter how you use your living room, though, you will need some staple pieces of furniture in it. But rather than keeping things basic, it’s a good idea to add some luxury items so that your living room feels five-star. Take these items, for instance.
Statement Coffee Table
No living room is complete without a coffee table. For some extra “wow” factor, you might want to make sure that yours makes a statement. For instance, you might want to choose an extra big coffee table on which you could display all of your favorite coffee-table books. It’s a good idea to take a look in antique and second-hand furniture shops for a coffee table as you will be able to find some really stylish ones at reasonable prices.
Likewise, you should also find a stylish armchair to complete your living room as well. Lots of interior designers know of the power of armchairs and use them as a room’s main focal point. The best way to do this with yours is to get one that will stand out from the rest of the room’s decor. Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you need to find one that will contrast with the rest of the interior design completely – just look for one that is, for instance, in a different color to your living room’s walls.
Super-Sized Bean Bag
As well as super stylish, your living room also needs to be extremely cozy. After all, this will be the main room for you to relax in! Take a look at the Comfy Sacks website and consider ordering one of their super-sized bean bags. These are great for adults and kids and are ridiculously comfy. You might want to get more than one so you don’t all end up fighting over them!
It’s really important that your living room is well lit. Ideally, you should get some dimmer lights so that you can control the lighting and manage the room’s ambiance. As well as dimmers, though, you should also consider getting a large floor lamp. These are very much in fashion right now and can add a nice little touch of sophistication to your living room.
You’d be surprised to see just how many different decor styles antique furniture suit. Even if you prefer contemporary decor, you should think about adding some statement antiques. Cabinets are the best option as they will also double up as practical storage.
How many of these furniture items do you already have in your living room? If there are some you are missing, you might want to think about adding them to improve your living room decor!
